Money. It should be simple...

Our company's vision is to see that silver becomes the people's money once again in the digital age:

Silver Gateway

Do you already own silver and want to join the Ripple network?

You can deposit silver in exchange for a warehouse receipt, called an XAG IOU. These digital claims onto silver we custodian on our clients' behalf can be used to purchase XRP or any other asset available over the Ripple protocol.

Service Fee: flat rate of 0.02 XAG applied to each troy ounce deposited to XAGATE.

Credit Card Gateway Option

  • For precious metal withdrawals, you may request to ship to your home address, work, bank, and you may request a withdrawal as a gift for shipment to a friend but under no circumstances will XAGATE ship precious metals to a P.O. box address

Upcoming Features and Ongoing Projects

A Statement of Disapproval Regarding BillC51

My name is Taylor Warden and I am an open source developer who uses a money remittance software which is an emerging technology in the field of Information Technology.

I am a Ripple Developer and Service Provider. Ripple is an open sourced protocol, just like SMTP is for EMail, that is maintained by California-based Ripple Labs. Ripple Labs does not own the protocol; they build applications for users and developers, provide services to businesses built on the protocol, and control the supply of a math-based currency of the same name: Ripple (XRP).

As a developer, business owner, and operator of a Ripple Gateway, I wish to state to the Canadian Government that I advocate the use of "virtual currencies" (better known as cryptocurrencies or math-based currencies). I will not accept the Canadian Government labelling me as a terrorist, drug trafficker, money launderer, or as a means to sponsor acts of terror. I am a developer and service provider for the Ripple Network. I reject to live in fear of my Government should the Sentate vote to pass this bill, thus, I wish to petition all members of the Senate to vote against BillC51.

I reject to live in fear for storing or using cryptographically secure means of wealth.

Should this legislation become Law, it will not affect my dissidence towards the Canadian Government.

I reject to live in fear of unlawful seizures of my bank account's funds, takedowns of this website, unlawful arrest/detention, or seizures of my hard-drives/computers for the services provided by the XAGATE gateway project in which I own and operate.

I reject to live in fear for choosing to further the development of the Ripple protocol or applications built for the network. I also reject to live in fear for choosing to take part in the study and development of this emerging technological field of improved transmissions of financial instruments in a cryptographically secure manner.

If you too are a concerned Canadian, please consider joining the discussion on the Official Ripple Forums.
